Experience and Service Opportunities
One of the keys to a successful experience is early and frequent advising. Even the strongest pre-health students benefit from advising, beginning in the freshman year, to develop a successful dossier for health professional school application. Fordham’s pre-health professions program provides both individual and group advising from the pre-health program advisors throughout their undergraduate years. Group advising sessions are class specific (freshman, sophomore, junior) and are scheduled to help students plan for significant upcoming events, such as taking the MCAT. Students are also encouraged to meet individually with the appropriate pre-health program advisor to discuss their progress in attaining acceptance into a health-professional program.
